Do you Need a Breast Implant Revision?

Breast revision Surgery

Breast Implant Revision

When a woman has breast augmentation surgery, the idea of possible future revision surgery probably doesn’t enter her mind. In the interests of being well informed and prepared for the unexpected, it should!

Breast Implant Revision is a surgical option available to women who are not happy with the look or feel of their new breasts. For many of them, size is the issue — usually too small, but sometimes too big — or they decide to change the type of breast implant or have them removed altogether and return to their natural breasts. Other women are unhappy over time with normal changes to their breasts following pregnancy or a large weight loss.

You would be surprised how may women have spent a lot of time deciding with the surgeon on the size of the the Breast Implants to be used to give them the look they are after, only a few months later to stand in front of a mirror and say “I should have gone bigger”. I often have the conversation with women before surgery and tell them whatever size they decide on just go one size bigger than you think. If you like the look of 325cc implants then go 350cc. Breast Implant revision surgery ends up being the next conversation!

There are valid medical reasons why women seek Breast Implant Revision. The most common include suspected or known implant rupture, pain, capsular contracture, an implant pushing through the skin (displaced implant), and medical reasons like seroma (collection of fluid below the skin), hematoma (blood clots) and infection. A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) study of more than 900 women with breast implants found that one-third of them had at least one such complication. Some of these complications may require breast implant replacement.

So before you undergo breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to understand that complications can and do occur, and they may make revision surgery necessary. Keep in mind that repeat breast surgery is often more complicated and costly than primary surgery, and may require a longer recovery period.

If you recently have had a breast implant and are worried about the costs of revision, then you can choose to have the surgery done abroad. A breast implant revision in Thailand will save you lots of money when you compare the cost with that of Australia. Many medical tourist agencies are currently operating in the country that can help you in scheduling your surgery abroad.

The Breast Implant Revision Process: What to Expect

Like all plastic surgeries, the Breast Implant Revision process begins with a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon specialising in breast augmentation and revision breast augmentation. This could be the same surgeon who performed your original breast augmentation (some offer to revise their work for free within a certain time frame) or a new surgeon. Your decision depends on a number of factors, including whether or not you were pleased with your initial surgical experience, how much time has passed since then and the nature of your concerns with your breasts.

If you stay with your original surgeon, he or she should have your medical records on file. If you go to a different surgeon, take your records to the consultation so the surgeon can review them.

During yourBreast Implant Revision consultation, be as open and specific as possible about your issues with your breasts and your expectations. If there were problems with your initial surgery, share them with the surgeon. If your concerns stem from other factors (e.g., natural aging or a change of heart), be honest about that, too.

The plastic surgeon will examine your breasts, analyzing their shape and size, placement of the nipples and areolas, and skin quality. He or she may also take some “before” photos for reference. Based on all these factors, the surgeon will develop a plan and go over it with you, discussing the finer points of implant types, sizes and their placement, where and how the incisions will be hidden, and what your realistic expectations should be.

The Breast Implant Revision Surgery

EachBreast Implant Revision surgery is as unique as the procedure that came before it and the woman involved. The surgical plan reflects your anatomy, cosmetic concerns, and expectations. The surgery itself may be as straightforward as replacing an implant, or switching from one type, shape or texture of the implant to another. Changing an implant placement from sub-glandular (under the breast tissue) to sub-pectoral (under the chest muscles) is more complicated. Some women opt to combine their revision breast augmentation with a breast lift. All these factors affect the cost of the breast revision surgery as well as the length of the recovery period.

The timing of Breast Implant Revision varies depending on the circumstances. A surgeon may go back in immediately following the initial surgery to address a cosmetic issue like pronounced asymmetry, or when an implant ruptures. Women who wish to go larger or smaller are usually advised to wait a minimum of three to six months for revision breast augmentation to allow for healing and to get a better idea of their true new size.

The length of surgery ranges from one to four hours, slightly longer than a breast augmentation procedure.

Breast Implant Revision Cost

Breast Implant Revision may be more costly than the primary surgery. It also may be relatively inexpensive if your surgeon offers to correct or revise his or her work free of charge. This decision is based on the nature of the complication and your surgeon’s policy. Our surgeons in Thailand offer a 12-month surgical guarantee if the surgery is a medical necessity as a result of the original surgery. Some do not take a surgeon’s fee, but you may be responsible for other costs, including (but not necessarily limited to) the operating room fee and anesthesia costs. Your breast implants may also be covered under a warranty, which could offset the cost as well. Make sure you are clear about the cost of your revision breast augmentation before you book your surgery.

Our Plastic surgeons in Sydney, Australia do offer simple Breast Implant Revision at the same cost of $5900 for Breast Augmentation if complications are not expected which is the case when wanting to go bigger or smaller.

Abdominal Etching

Abdominal Etching


The abdominal muscles are the hardest to shape and tone. Most people who exercise regularly are unable to develop the six-pack abs even after continuously performing strenuous abdominal exercises.

The reason for this is that the abdominal muscles lie underneath the abdomen and are tough to directly impact. There is a considerable layer of fat that covers these muscles and unless it is removed or the abdominal muscles have been greatly strengthened, it is highly unlikely that they are going to become visible.

Abdominal Etching is a type of liposuction that involves suctioning off the fat from the abdominal area. This procedure reveals the abdominal muscles lying underneath and gives you the six-pack abs you’ve always wanted. Even people who do not exercise regularly can get a six-pack after undergoing this procedure.

Abdominal etching using the latest techniques in Liposculpture can provide you with the look that you desire

How Can Abdominal & Muscle Etching Help?

This procedure emphasizes muscles in areas such as the abdomen by:

  • Selectively removing a small amount of fat from around the patient’s natural musculature
  • Sculpting the abdomen to create a more athletic contour
  • Highlighting other muscle groups such as the thighs, calves, deltoids, pectorals or biceps

The procedure is best suited for those who have localized fat deposits in their abdominal area and have found diet and exercise ineffective. Our specialized ab etching procedure is preferred by a large number of patients mainly because we bring forth customized and enhanced muscle definition by revealing the hidden creases of the abs.

What the Procedure Involves

Removes superficial fat that hides the underlying abdominal muscles

Excess fat is selectively removed through a small hollow tube inserted through tiny incisions

Most incisions are hidden in the natural body creases, making the scars less visible

Patients who have loose abdominal skin find our laser abdominal etching procedure highly effective as the three separate wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320 nm) energy not only liquefies fat for effortless extraction but also tightens skin optimally.

  • Achieve a flat, tighter abdomen
  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • Quick procedure with minimized downtime
  • Safe, risk-free
  • Less scarring
